Clearly Corrective Brightening & Exfoliating Daily Cleanser is rated 3.6 out of 5 by 130.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Suits my skin I bought this a few months ago and didn't know what to expect after reading mixed reviews. As I haven't used the old formula I can only comment on my findings. I love it and the results I am getting on my older, yet oily and blemish prone skin. I apply it to a wet face and use a wash cloth to take it off, rinse the cloth and rinse my face again, following on with the Clearly Corrective Toner and moisturiser. I do change the cloth daily and use quite warm water. I have noticed my enlarged pores are a lot less noticeable, which is a huge positive to me and my foundation goes on a lot better. Just about to order my 2nd tube :-)

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Bad Reformulation The Clearly Corrective Treatment Water is such a disappointment, I have used the Clearly Corrective Clarity-Activating Toner for many years. Kiehl’s, why so many formulation changes …Such as the Clearly Corrective Exfoliator? Micro-Blur Skin Perfector? I have been a loyal Kiehl’s user for 10+ years, with all these changes, I’ve switched half my skin care line to another brand.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Not for very sensitive skin Day 1- upon first use my skin felt clean, bright and fresh. By the next day I could tell my skin was suffering already, it felt itchy, tight and sore. By the end of day 3 my acne had errupted and the whole of my face was bright red and so sore. I was gentle and used only a little of the product and I was very upset because I explained my skin issues to the rep and she assured me this would be OK. I stopped using it after day 3 and its taken a full week for my skin to go back to the way it was before. Far too searching for my skin.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love this product! I added this face wash recently to my daily Kiehl's skincare routine and after a couple uses I couldn't believe how smooth my skin felt! What a difference this product has made.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love! I am surprised to see so many negative reviews for this cleanser because I love it and it has had wonderful effects on my skin. It seems like most of the negative reviews are coming from those who used a previous product that has been discontinued and are disappointed that this product is not comparable, rather than looking at it as a new and different product. This cleanser makes my skin look and feel visibly smoother and softer. I have milia-prone skin, and i this exfoliator is helping to prevent new milia from forming - my skin has not looked this good in quite some time! Will continue to use.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Not impressed overall I bought this product as a replacement for the purifying foaming cleanser which has now been discontinued. I am disappointed with this new formula. It’s the second product in this range that has been reformulated. I had such brilliant results with the foaming cleanser. Using this formula of the clearly corrective cleanser has left my skin with increased dryness and tightness. I’m not overly convinced that it has actually improved my skin. So am currently searching for an alternative from a different company. I really wish Kiehls had not discontinued the purifying foaming cleanser.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Wish they hadn't changed this Like others, I was unpleasantly surprised to find that this is NOT the same product as the Clearly Corrective Brightening Exfoliator they used to carry (although the packaging is so close, which is why i didn't notice this was a "daily cleanser" and not an "exfoliator"). The old product was amazing, after one use you could feel the dead skin slough off and the results were noticeable. I loved that it was a chemical exfoliant so that you didn't have to scrub hard or at all to still get the benefits. This is just a gel cleanser with exfoliating beads in it. Super bummed.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Worked for me So, I can’t compare this to the cleanser that others have referenced that was discontinued from this line. I also received this as a sample. Personally, it’s done good things for my skin. I’ve noticed a brighter complexion and some reduction in dark spots (I was also using a sample of their dark spot serum, so that could be helping as well). I’ve also used it daily and I find that it exfoliates without irritating my skin, and I’m usually very sensitive to that. The sample is enough for me to pull the trigger on a full size, but I think one thing is clear: if you can try before you buy, do it.

Does this product contain micro-plastics?

I am concerned about plastic pollution and am trying to avoid using products that contain plastic microbeads. I know this product contains natural exfoliants, but can someone confirm whether or not it contains plastic microbeads?
Asked by: KathrynC
Yes - ACRYLATES COPOLYMER - is a micro-bead plastic used for abrasion.

Are you going to go back to the old formula?

I was about to order more face wash but I see you changed it and the reviews are horrible. I have sensitive skin and even within the Kiehls line have issues. I hope you will be changing back.
Asked by: cgreen

Is this safe to use to wash around eye area?

Asked by: EliDominguez

Does this cleanser foam up, in addition to exfoliating-- like the Clearly Corrective Purifying Facial Cleanser?

Asked by: Anonymous
The clearly corrective brightening & exfoliating daily cleaner does have a light foam. I highly recommend it.
